I have a CWC 1600 everything works fine on it but it does not get cold. Everything powers on fine and you can adjust the temp up and down but it just does not get cold.


Your Peltier is most likely shot! You can fix it for less than $10 in about 30 minutes.
Take the back of the fridge apart and remove the fan and aluminum heat-sync. Sandwiched in between the heatsync you'll see the Peltier pad with two wires coming off it. That's what you need to replace. The peltier has a make and model number on it. I would recommend ordering the same make and model. The specs should be 12v DC and less than 5amp and 60 watt draw. Your wine cooler's power supply can only output 5amp and 60watt max power. When you install the new Peltier you'll need to spread new thermal compound on both sides of the Peltier. I recommend Artic Silver Ceramique. You can buy this at your local Radio Shack or any computer store where they sell motherboards and CPUs.

Aficionado hvt18dfbb is running but NO TEMP CHANGE


There is no compressor on these units. These units use a Peltier cold/hot module where the cold side faces the heat sink and the fan exhausts the heat side. Another fan sends the cool side into the frig. I have the same unit, I am experiencing the same issue. I was looking to change out the Peltier modules (about $7 each) and try that. I did find a replacement Control Board is about $45 and if the Peltier change doesn't work this may be my next step.

Coleman thermoelectric cooler not cooling


Sounds like the Peltier effect elements have failed.

Depending on your handyman skills, you can change them yourself or have someone troubleshoot and change them.

Not cooling at all.


If it is worth it you should have a refrigiration tech look at it.

It could be out of Freon, or the compressor may not be operating.

My Black & Decker bna17b mini fridge simply does not cool enough. The manual claims it should get down to 37 degrees Fahrenheit in a 70 degree room. I put the setting on high (coldest) and my milk...


Sorry Brian & Charles, but you missed the boat on this one.
This Black & Decker refrigerator uses Peltier Thermo-electric modules on heat sinks. If you blow off the dust and the unit still does not cool, these modules have probably gone bad.

The heat sinks/modules attach to the back of the fridge with two screws each. Unplug the power, remove the screws and then remove the heat sink/cooling fan units. On the refrigerator side will be a smooth plate with two wires coming out of it. Plug the fridge in and touch this plate. If it is not cold to the touch, your Peltier module is bad. You can buy new ones for about $20 each - Parts Express has the Velleman brand Peltier 2 model. But seriously, you'd probably be better off just buying a new fridge.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Peltier devices although not that efficient are known to be reliable. On your described problem, possibilities are:
  • thermoelectric (Peltier) module(s) (most likely) - the active cooling elements.  Most design have several sub-modules connected in series to form an array.  Failure of one in between will fail the entire module;
  • controller board  (likely) - or more specifically the section that regulates/control supplied power to the Peltier modules;
  • sensor (least likely) - most designs would have a sensor for the hotside forced ventilation system.   If the external ventialtion (fan) fails, then the controller board would prevent supply of voltage to the modules;
  • connectors (a possibility) - other than the Peltier effect, it is possible to have electrolysis on the terminals/connectors which would cause corrosion.  Check and clean all connectors to expose fresh metal, ensure tightness and positive contact.
An easy check is to test for the presence / absence of voltage to the module(s).  If voltage could be found, then it would be the Peltier module(s) that have failed. Absence of supply voltage would indicate the controller board to be possibly faulty.  To confirm, determine if there is power supplied to the controller board but none is in turn supplied to the Peltier modules. Absence of power going into the controller board would indicate a power supply problem.

Please exercise due caution when working with a live unit.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
